Nano-scale precision lies at the heart of manufacturing leaps in the automotive and consumer electronics industries. With research and development (R&D) that upholds Japanese craftsmanship, NS Tool is setting the stage for yet another leap with polycrystalline diamond (PCD) tools for mirror surface machining of optical products that can revolutionise diverse industries.
A leading manufacturer of small-diameter carbide end mills, NS Tool predicted the future of miniaturisation 20 years ago. Today, its array of 7,000 tools of all shapes and sizes enables the production of extraordinary dies, moulds and parts. The world’s smallest end mill is 0.01 in diameter, and produced by NS Tool.
“We have the technology to produce this kind of small diameter as a standard item for mass production,” says Hiroji Goto, president. “Demand for PCD tools is growing alongside new product development.”
All NS Tool products are made in Japan in keeping with the company’s noble mission to cultivate Japanese craftsmanship for generations to come. With growing overseas business, the company maintains offices in Hong Kong and Shenzhen to ensure timely order delivery and customer service, especially to clients on the mainland and in Southeast Asia. NS Tool caters to first-tier to third-tier suppliers in the automotive industry and companies providing electronics manufacturing services to makers of smartphones and medical devices. Distributors across Asia also provide after-sales support.
Known as the brand that explores the possibilities of a new era, NS Tool is focusing its R&D on next-generation technologies such as automated driving, internet of things-related sensors, robots and medical equipment.
“Investing in R&D, NS Tool uses technology to create more market space and collaborate with customers to generate more innovations,” Goto says. “We never stop developing new products for the future.”
